I will quote the homepage of the Warzone 2100 Resurrection Project to tell you something about this game:
Warzone 2100 is a real-time strategy game, developed by Pumpkin Studios and published by Eidos-Interactive®.
Although comparable to Earth2150® in many significant aspects, it does contain some that are unique. These include various radar technologies, a greater focus on artillery and counter-battery technologies, more frequent in-game cinematic updates as gameplay progress, as well as a different vehicle design method. It was released in 1999 for both PC and Playstation®.
The Warzone 2100 Ressurrection Project aims to continue the vision of Pumpkin studios started in 1999 with the game Warzone 2100, Which was closed source until Dec 6, 2004 when it was let out the doors for the first time under a GPL license.
Upon entering the game you land from your transport and establish your base. Here you conduct research, design and manufacture vehicles, build new structures and prepare your plans of global conquest. If the game goes badly you'll end up fighting last ditch battles here to defend your base from enemy attacks.
Combat is frenetic, with extensive graphical effects and buildings giving rise to flying shrapnel and boulders. Within the game are many different structures and vehicles. From an initial Command Center, you then go on to build Resource Extractors to provide fuel for Power Generators, which in turn supply energy to Factories, Research Facilities and weapons emplacements to protect your base. Features:
* 400+ Technologies to research
* 2,000+ different units to design
* 3 Large campaign maps to conquer
* 24 Fast play mission maps for extra action
* Intelligence Display sets objectives dynamically
* Interactive message system
* Fast Play Interface graphically Based
* Quick Screen Navigation
* Fast Find System for units & structures
* Set Factories to constant production
* Automatically send each factory's units to where you want them
You can clearly see that "Warzone 2100" was a commercial product and it doesn't have to hide behind other classics in the RTS genre. Sounds, graphics and gameplay are top notch. There's single player and multi player mode and a campaign name that really deserves its name. After completing a mission you take all your progress like experienced units and constructed buildings over to the next level. So you better think twice how to build your base, because mistakes made in the beginning of the game won't be forgiven later on.
Game is available for Windows, Linux and Mac. So there's no excuse for not playing this great game.
